Hullabaloo bringing fun to your home

2 min read

Sandown Bay spectacular Hullabaloo, a community celebration of discovery and exploration, fun and wonder is back, but this year bringing the Bay, and the Isle of Wight Biosphere’s first birthday, straight to your home.

Hullabaloo is an outstanding mix of science, nature, art with live music, madcap carnival and seaside tradition. Each year, over 12,000 people join organisers Shademakers and The Common Space by the sea in Sandown to explore all that’s extraordinary on their doorstep. This year, because of the lockdown, they will be bringing everyone the tools to create a right proper Hullabaloo… at home!

Simply tune into the Hullabaloo website, Facebook page and YouTube Channel for a whole host of ideas, projects, workshops and tutorials between now and ‘Hullabaloo at Home’ weekend on Saturday and Sunday June 20 and 21.

All this will take place inside your own two metres and it’s free! This year’s theme is extra-special too, celebrating all it means to live and work in a UNESCO Biosphere and you can join in the Biosphere birthday celebrations on Friday, June 19 too.

Here’s just a taster of what to look out for…

Artistic Director at Hullabaloo, Sharon George said, “Thanks to a grant from the Arts Council, Hullabaloo was set to bring international arts team Captain Boomer to the Bay. Despite Coronavirus limiting our collective landscapes, Hullabaloo is all about creating opportunities to discover and explore our local environment and this year is no different. We’ve decided the show will go on, just in new ways.”
